Brrrrrrrrr - here comes the winter

Hands up who's been moaning it's been too mild and we need a proper cold snap to get things moving..?

Well you're going to get your way this week, as temperatures take a nose dive.

Weathermen reckon it could get as cold as minus 17 in the Midlands by Thursday, as the wind turns to the east sucking Arctic air over much of the country.

After an unseasonally warm spell, the rest of January is set to be much colder, with temperatures struggling to get much above freezing.
